Let's journey into the wild once more as we come together to play, learn and create new memories at Forest School this school holidays.

There are no walls in our classroom, it's just you, me and the trees! Come find us at Petrie Creek behind the Sunshine Coast PCYC, Youth Ave, Nambour


Raft Building

Will you sink or will you float?

Children will use hand tools (including bow saws, hammers, hand drills etc) and up-cycled materials to build a life-sized raft to float in the creek.

There are no instructions, they need to work together to figure it out!

We've got the materials and tools for that. Want to build a cubby house? We’ve got the natural resources, ropes, hand tools and sheets for that. Bush Club is all about free play in nature with friends.
